SHOREBIRDS AND ICE CREAM
August 4, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
August may be hot and humid but “fall” migration is underway and the Esopus Meadows can often harbor large concentrations of waders like Great Egrets and shorebirds not always easy to locate in county. After a tough evening of scanning the water chestnut pads for peeps we will try to recuperate over a soft serve cone post outing at Port Ewen’s Frozen Rainbow. Meet trip leader Wendy Tocci (firstname.lastname@example.org ) at Scenic Hudson’s Esopus Meadows Preserve (269 River Road, Ulster Park, NY 12487) at 6:00 p.m. The party will likely walk the very short distance to the lighthouse where parking is limited, so parking at Esopus Meadows Preserve is encouraged.
The field trips of JBNHS are oriented to nature study. They are free and open to the public. We do, however, sometimes visit sites that charge admission fees, which are the responsibility of the participants. Children are very welcome on field trips, but pets are not. Although there is a brief courtesy waiting period for latecomers, the meeting times are important: please arrive in time to sign up with the leader.
